Report of Independent Accountants

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of Wyeth:

Our audit of the consolidated financial statements referred to in our report dated November 26, 2002, except for paragraph 5 of Note 14 which is as of December 9, 2002, appearing in this Annual Report on Form 10-K/A of Wyeth also included an audit of the financial statement schedule listed in Item 15(a)2 of this Form 10-K/A. In our opinion, this financial statement schedule presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein when read in conjunction with the related consolidated financial statements. The 2000 and 1999 financial statement schedule information of the Company was audited by other independent accountants who have ceased operations. Those independent accountants expressed an unqualified opinion on that financial statement schedule information in their report dated January 24, 2002.

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of Wyeth:

We have audited in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States, the consolidated financial statements included in Wyeth's (formerly American Home Products Corporation - a Delaware Corporation) Annual Report to Stockholders incorporated by reference in this Form 10-K, and have issued our report thereon dated January 24, 2002. Our audit was made for the purpose of forming an opinion on those statements taken as a whole. The schedule* listed in the accompanying index is the responsibility of the Company's management and is presented for purposes of complying with the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and is not part of the basic financial statements. The schedule* has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, fairly states in all material respects the financial data required to be set forth therein in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.
